My mentor and friend, Janet, posted this on her facebook page: “Good time of year to audaciously cross things OFF the way too long ‘to do’ lists!”
What a great idea! You weren’t going to do them anyway (you have the proof – you haven’t done them yet!), so why carry the guilt and the burden of thinking you “ought” to do them?
Nothing is quite as energising and relieving as reflecting on your priorities, being realistic about what you can and cannot do during your finite time on Earth, taking stock of what you do and do not really want to do and adjusting your To Do list accordingly.
Make space for your best work and your favourite ways to spend your time. Free your mind from thinking about stuff that is just never going to happen. Cross things off your list now! 🙂
